From the journal website:

KNOW: A Journal on the Formation of Knowledge investigates the construction, transmission, and contestation of forms of knowledge from antiquity to today. What people know and how they claim to know it, the very choice of things as objects of knowledge, are products of history, politics, and culture.

The flagship publication of the Stevanovich Institute on the Formation of Knowledge, KNOW uncovers and explicates this vast terrain in both past and present.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (2017) to present.

From the beginning of World War II through the end of the twentieth century, the mass movement of peoples caused problems for governments around the world. Responses to legal immigration, illegal immigration, and refugee crises varied greatly, often depending on a country’s proximity to the crisis. These problems and responses helped shape the world we live in.

What is the context of this database?

This database contains news reports, television transcripts, and radio transcripts from around the world. The reports were chosen by a U.S. government agency called the Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS)—which became part of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in 1947–to be disseminated among government officials and decision makers. The reports begin with the refugee flows during World War II and cover all crises through 1996. The reports come from many nations and, where necessary, were translated into English. No U.S. newspapers or broadcasts are included in this database.
